    Oh the sting of betrayal goes deep.

    What do you think about what National labor leader Richard Trumka said;

    "You had two factions in the White House, you had one faction that actually had some of the policies that we would have supported on trade and infrastructure but turned out to be racist. And on the other hand, you had people who weren't racist, but they were Wall Street. And the Wall Streeters began to dominate the administration and have moved [Trump's] agenda back to everything he fought against in the election."


    Wall Street didn't flinch at the sudden exits of White House officials like Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer but not Gary Cohn and Steven Mnuchin, the Goldman guys whose tax scheme is seen as "highly regressive," mostly benefitting the top 5% of earners while cutting $7.8 trillion in revenue over the next 10 years.

    So much for Trump's "unrigging America" tagline.  - http://www.businessinsider.com/white-ho … hs-2017-8/

    Cohn is front-runner to replace Federal Reserve Chair Yellen.

    "If Cohn were to leave, Trump's economic policies could take a turn to the more populist side, a turn that markets would not appreciate," said Lewis Alexander.


    Yeah, we certainly wouldn't want Wall Streeters to not be able to afford their third house on the Caymans now would be we?

      I heard something you might be interested in. PRI has a Citizen sleuth project. They've put together details on all holdings of all members of the Trump administration. They are looking for help monitoring to determine if policy is being put in place that will benefit those people. I think it is part of their Reveal program. You should check it out. It sounds like something right up your alley. Personally, I think they should do it on all politicians but they have a particular bee in their bonnet when it comes to Trump. Just like you. smile
